How Big Your Heart?

with Ron Deal | July 7, 2020

I met a couple who lead a stepfamily small group in their church alongside his ex-wife and her new husband. You heard me right. The ex-spouses and new spouses teach the program together. How'd they get there? Well, the stepmom felt called by the Holy Spirit to buy her husband's ex-wife a Christmas gift. Eventually the two women became friends and everything improved on both sides. Having a big heart is essentially a choice to move past petty insecurities, not build walls, and soften your heart.

How’d they get there? Well, the stepmom felt called by the Holy Spirit to buy her husband’s ex-wife a Christmas gift. Eventually this paid off and the two women became friends. Then everything improved on both sides even to the point of teaching a class together.
